SE Asia Stocks-Largely higher; Indonesia marks record close
* Most rise tracking broader Asia
* Indonesia posts record close
* Singapore records 10-yr closing high
By Devika Syamnath
Jan 16 (Reuters) - Indonesian shares notched up an all-time closing high on Tuesday and the Philippine index came off record levels while most other Southeast Asian stock markets ended the day on a positive note after a wary start, tracking gains across broader Asia.
The Indonesian index .JKSE rose 0.7 percent to 6,429.692, buoyed by telecom and consumer staples stocks.
Telekomunikasi Indonesia TLKM.JK climbed 2.2 percent while cigarette maker Gudang Garam GGRM.JK added 2.4 percent.
The Philippine index .PSI edged up 0.1 percent, led by consumer stocks and telcos, easing off an earlier peak of
"That (record) level offers strong resistance given that the market has been on a rally since the start of the year," said
Jeffrey Lucero, equity research analyst at RCBC Securities.
"The 8,900 level would be hard to break this week, particularly as investors would like to take a wait-and-see
position before upcoming corporate earnings," he added.
Consumer goods manufacturers Universal Robina Corp URC.PS and Jollibee Foods JFC.PS led the gains with the latter adding 5.2 percent to hit a record close.
Consumer stocks could benefit from the recent tax reform program which can increase the disposable income of consumers, Lucero added.
Singapore stocks .STI reversed earlier losses to end 0.4 percent higher at levels not see since December 2007.
Gains in financials and industrial stocks pushed the city-state's main index higher.
Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp OCBC.SI and United Overseas Bank UOBH.SI marked record closing levels, having added 0.7 percent and 1 percent respectively.
Thailand's SET Index .SETI rose as much as 0.5 percent to an all-time high before closing 0.05 percent higher, propped up by real estate and consumer staples.
Berli Jucker BJC.BK and CP All CPALL.BK rallied more than 3.5 percent each.
Malaysia .KLSE closed marginally higher while Vietnam VNI bucked the trend to close slightly lower.
